The dahlias are starting to bloom and Shoreline resident Dr. John Hibbs is back with his project to raise money for the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Senior Center.

Hibbs is a dahlia grower, with 75 varieties in his Ridgecrest yard. He has partnered with the Ridgecrest Public House and Bastyr University to provide bouquets of dahlias.

The Pub offers the bouquets in return for a donation to the Senior Center, where Hibbs supervises a weekly naturopathic medicine shift.

Suggested donation is $1 a stem.

The Senior Center, which took a significant financial hit last year when United Way decided to concentrate its funding elsewhere, can use the money.

Last year, Hibbs raised $1670 for the Senior Center with his blooms. He is hoping to bring in more this year. Bastyr is partnering with him once again. Last year they took 100 blooms a week for six weeks and contributed $600.

Bastyr used the flowers to decorate events, acknowledge employees, grace Board meetings, offices, and cafeteria tables.

You can pick up a bouquet at the Ridgecrest Public House, located at 520 NE 165th St, Shoreline 98155 in the Ridgecrest business district, open 4pm – 12am seven days a week.
